Nancy Hanks was the mother of Abraham Lincoln, and when she died the future president was all of six years old. Shortly thereafter, Lincoln's father, Thomas, married Sarah Bush and shortly thereafter the impoverished family moved to the woods of Indiana where a strong bond was created between stepmother Sarah and the boy Abraham that was never to be broken. From the age of nine, and throughout the rest of his life, Lincoln would call her "Mother".

These are the tender memories of his boyhood that she called to mind just five months after his murder at Ford's Theater.
